thats exactly what i have on my 99 silver 9-3, absolutely love them

oh, and ASA is owned and operated by BBS, so that means same designs, same technologies, the only difference is that ASA's are manufactured in asia for way less than bbs's, which i think are made in europe

very nice wheels, i got mine from tire rack

i love wheels with lip too, but i am uber happy with these, lots of compliments at school about them. From what i have heard, and experienced, ASA wheels have never had any quality issues, even back in the day when they werent liscenced by BBS, and were just making BBS rip-offs. I have nailed some serious pot holes with them too, which, if you live in PA is a given. The one left tire marks from my sidewall on the wheel i hit it so hard (there is a road near me that they jump out in front of you, and you dont have any options, but thats a different story) but still no damage whatsoever to the wheels

Yep. He's sure...

From the TireRack site: In 1990, ASA decided to build a state-of-the-art alloy wheel manufacturing facility. Knowing the complexity and challenge this presented, ASA went to BBS in Germany to tap the best technical knowledge in facility design, manufacturing processes and quality controls for producing high quality alloy wheels. Production began at the new facility in Jeywon, South Korea in March 1992.

Their agreement with BBS, a world leader in wheel technology, engineering and manufacturing with over two decades of success in the racing community and the high-end aftermarket worldwide, is still in effect today. This cooperative agreement gives ASA valuable access to technical and product information that BBS gains from their motorsports and manufacturing involvement.

By basing its quality standards around those used by BBS, in 1994 ASA became one of the first alloy wheel companies to obtain ISO9001. In 1999 ASA obtained QS9000 certification, one of the highest quality standards in the automotive industry. (ISO9001 and QS9000 are world-recognized standards for quality.)

These high quality standards have allowed ASA to produce over 750,000 Original Equipment wheels per year for vehicle manufacturers in Europe and Asia. With a total capacity to produce over 1.2 million wheels per year, ASA produces aftermarket wheels with the excess capacity and exports to 51 countries around the world.

They would fit fine for you, Dan.

94 and up Saabs (not the 94 900 vert) all use 5x110, but the 9-3SS has less of a negative offset so the wheels stick out a bit more.
